Two years from now, the electric-vehicle startup Rivian hopes to be making its R1T electric pickup truck at a former Mitsubishi (and Chrysler) plant in Normal, Illinois. If everything goes according to plan, shortly after that, in early 2021, it will start to deliver its other so-called electric adventure vehicle: the R1S all-electric seven-passenger SUV. With the R1S, which Rivian has just previewed at the Los Angeles auto show, much is carried over from its also-hypothetical R1T—including the three model levels attached to 105-kwh, 135-kwh, and 180-kwh battery packs, with four motors, rated up to 174 hp depending on the version. And from them should come the same exceptional 820 pound-feet of torque—and acceleration times of less than 7.0 seconds to 100 mph for the quickest version and a top speed of 125 mph for all.

Teaser for Rivian R1T debuting at 2018 Los Angeles auto showWith the Rivian R1T pickup revealed this morning, just ahead of the Los Angeles auto show, and the R1S SUV expected to be shown here this week, a Michigan-based electric-vehicle startup called Rivian might have something that’s been a long time coming: the first widely available fully electric light-duty pickup. Along with that, it might have the first battery pack significantly larger than what’s used by Tesla, the most power and torque ever in a normal-production light truck, and the first vehicle that can be DC fast-charged at more than 150 kw. The trucks that Rivian is revealing this week are loaded with great ideas and what appear to be effective designs, but it serves to cage all this with plenty of coulds or mights as they’re still far from production-ready. At about two years from first deliveries, all those boasting points are in the hypothetical realm—because they depend on Rivian’s … [Read more...] about Rivian R1T all-electric pickup revealed: 400-mile range, 160-kw DC fast charging
